I, Tonya Movie Review – Watched 01/02/2019

Director: Craig Gillespie

Writer: Steven Rogers

Stars: Margot Robbie, Sebastian Stan, Allison Janney

Margot is one damn fine actress. I’m not going to lie, her acting in this film is off the chart good, better than her stint as Queen Elizabeth in Mary, Queen of Scots. This girl is going places. I would say the only thing letting Margot Robbie down is her looks. She’s too pretty to make ugly if you get what I mean.

It took me a while to think about how to write this review. While real-life mysteries may be fun to watch, real-life tragedies are not, especially when it involves the lives of young people falling victim to addiction. I can’t pretend to say I know how this might feel because I’ve never been an addict but I grew up in a household with an alcoholic for a father, so I can somehow relate to movies about substance abuse, and I can certainly understand how families can be torn apart by it.
